NASA said the new technology developed in the Space Technology Mission Directorate will benefit aerospace and government industries in the U.S.

NASA has created a new program that will enable greater development in space technology for the future called the Space Technology Mission Directorate.

The Space Technology Mission Directorate aims to develop new, advanced technologies for both current and future NASA missions. NASA Associate Administrator Michael Gazarik will lead the new program.

"A robust technology development program is vital to reaching new heights in space -- and sending American astronauts to new destinations like an asteroid and Mars," NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said. "A top priority of NASA is to invest in cross-cutting, transformational technologies. We focus on collaboration with industry and academia that advances our nation's space exploration and science goals while maintaining America's competitive edge in the new innovation economy."


The Space Technology Mission Directorate is expected to take a portfolio type of approach that will cover many discipline areas and levels of technology. The research and development will take place in NASA centers, industry, academia and government/international offices.

NASA said the new technology developed in the Space Technology Mission Directorate will benefit aerospace and government industries in the U.S., and will "address national needs."

The sincerity of the efforts put into those classic shows we love doesn't appear to be coming back. The wonderment and adventure of science fiction has given way to whore-of-the-week style reality trash, over-consumerism, and cookie cutter sitcoms.


the reason for that is pure $$$

even shows that are highly rated and making money are being cut in favor of "reality" TV because it simply costs soo much less to make, so the people at the top actually end up making more. note i said the people at the top. the grunts are low paid and work in "sweat shop" like environments.

when you make a scripted show, you need sound stages..and that means unions who are very expensive to deal with.

with the "reality" tv you might only need a couple camera people and a small, non union, support crew for production, then a small post production staff.. which cuts costs DRAMATICALLY.

Oh I don't disagree. I just think our society has more to do with it.

A friend of mine who thinks the Big Bang Theory is the greatest thing since sliced bread finally, after many attempts, got me to concede and watch a few episodes.

Never before in my life have I been so convinced of the utter stupidity of the masses. And that our culture is in a downward spiral.
